1/2/2017 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of Portugal, to be published on Monday 6 February, analyses the country’s gradual recovery from a deep recession as well as how the government’s broad structural reform agenda has contributed to more inclusive growth. The Survey discusses how further reforms can reduce vulnerabilities across the economy, boost investment, improve the business environment and raise skills.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 10:30 GMT for immediate release. Create your MyOECD account here.
